Very impressive. Shocking architecture. Great, big open plane space with four fountains surrounded by buildings in rococo style. I was really happy being there.

Great place to stroll. Amazing sights. Wonderful gardens, fountains and statues. Even if you don't pay to go into the museum be sure to stroll the grounds with no fee.

So why is it terrible? Because I find it extremely disheartening when I have traveled thousands of miles to see an exhibition of this quality, and it is forbidden to take pictures.

You have to be a museum type of person I guess and I was museum'd out, so much to see and can get a bit much, try to buy passes that let you come and go and take a break. Power walking it still gets to you as just when you think you are done another corridor appears. Wasn't for... More

The Zwinger is a beautiful place with a wonderful garden, an amazing Glockenspiel made from Meißner porcelain, and lots and lots of baroque hidden treasures to discover. Make sure to check out the Nymphenbrunnen!

One of the most beautiful places in the city, a must-see. Includes 3 Museum Old Masters Gallery, the Museum of Porcelain, from which there is an access to a terrace on the second floor and the Museum of Mathematics (which presents antique clock, geographical and celestial globes, and various geodesic instruments).

Rococo design with glass and stone. One of the entrance gates has a giant sort of crown. There is a great Chinese porcelain collection inside. The museum also may be small, but they have a world class collection.
